thinq.co.uk: A blog post made by Novell late last month - accusing one of its largest competitors in the commercial Linux space, Red Hat, of deliberately obfuscating its code to hamper third-party support efforts - raised some eyebrows in the community, so we sat down with the post's author, Michael Applebaum, to find out what's what.
computerweekly.com: Novell's director of Linux marketing Michael Applebaum has been vocal this week on the subject of Linux and its relationship with enterprise level deployments.
dedoimedo.com: openSUSE is one of my favorite household distros. Alongside Ubuntu, it serves my Linux needs well and true. Now, version 11.4 is out and it seems to be making a lot of good noise all over the place. I had to test it, of course.
techtarget.com: Suse Linux shops are still anxiously awaiting completion of Attachmate’s buyout of Novell so they can get on with their lives.
Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on an OpenSUSE 11.4 server with PHP5 support (through FastCGI) and MySQL support.
ostatic.com: Andreas Jaeger, openSUSE Program Manager at Novell, has announced the results of the future versioning polls.
LAMP is short for Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP. This tutorial shows how you can install an Apache2 webserver on an OpenSUSE 11.4 server with PHP5 support (mod_php) and MySQL support.
This tutorial shows how you can set up an OpenSUSE 11.4 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.
opensuse.org: The openSUSE Education team is proud to present openSUSE-Edu Li-f-e (Linux for Education) based on openSUSE 11.4. The image is a “hybrid” iso image which can be used to burn a Live DVD or to create a Live USB stick.
opensuse.org (Jos Poortvliet): Just a few months ago, the XFCE project announced XFCE 4.8, the result of over 2 years of hard work. This desktop, one of the four official desktops of openSUSE 11.4, brings many new features.
This is a detailed description about how to set up an OpenSUSE 11.4 server (x86_64) that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable), Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH and TLS, BIND DNS server, Proftpd FTP server, MySQL server, Dovecot POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc. In the end you should have a system that works reliably, and if you like you can install the free webhosting control panel ISPConfig 2 (i.e., ISPConfig runs on it out of the box).
